If its the pot type bell housing, then what your going to want to do is bolt a special dial indicator tool on the crank shaft and have some one turn the engine for you and you adjust the bell housing till its an even reading all the way around. Your going to need to find the specs out of a cummins service manual, as it will also have the procedure written more specifically than what I just told you & have the part number for the dial indicator tool. Hope this helps.
